Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has accused Governor Godwin Obaseki of running away from debating him asking how long would he keep on running from engaging him.
Speaking following the governor’s decision to withdraw from the BBC Pidgin English debate, the APC candidate said it was unfortunate the governor decided from responding to the questions that had been prepared for him.
Speaking through his spokesman, John Mayaki, the APC candidate said:
“We had only asked Mr Obaseki one question and he stood up and fled. How can a man be so unserious? He already absconded from the previous gubernatorial debate earlier scheduled by the Nigerian Governorship Debate Group.
“For how long will he continue to hoodwink people and run away? The same man suddenly claimed to have business affairs to handle after he appeared for screening at the APC office before he was rightfully disqualified. Now look at his deputy saying that Edo students have only artificial intelligence. They don’t even regard Edo children as important.”
